System of Education Needs Urgent Reforms

Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Kabul (BNA) President Ghani’s insist on more supervision over educational institutes and universities indicates that Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is seeking to withdraw the critical situation of educational organs that has prevailed the education system of the country.
BNA analyst of educational affairs commenting on the issue writes president Ghani recently held the first session of human sources high council. In the session beside other educational issues, the current situation of the country the ways to improve the education system were discussed.
President Ghani insisted that there should be more supervision from educational centers and universities and should be paid more attention on education, higher education and certain laws of education need to be adjusted.
The words are stated in a time where the education system both in primary, secondary and higher education suffering from certain problems, even one can say it is in a very critical condition.
From quantity point of view there is a great number of state – run and private schools are operating in the country and dozens of private higher education institutes operating in Kabul and other cities of the country.
The number of students in primary and high schools and in higher education section is almost eleven million.
It is good news that a great number of children and youths are attending the process of education, but regretfully the system quality of education system is suffering serious problems.
Crowded classed in state – run schools, shortage of teaching materials, shortage of professional teachers, lack of school building as the authorities confess that half of the schools have no building. Although complaining of a number of teachers from their low salaries, and finally the hostility of armed opposition groups against school, students and teachers are the main factors that caused the lower quality of education in the country.
High education also has its own problems; one of the major problems that engulfed the higher education is operating as a commercial organization. Today our education system is not comparable with our neighboring countries in quality point of view.
The students both in high schools and higher education institutes mostly complain about low quality of education, misusing in private educational institutes which represent and demonstrate the critical situation of education system that would be catastrophic for the future of the country.
Considering the situation, it would be better the president who have taught as teacher, accelerate and improve the process of monitoring in teaching and educational centers and take firm steps toward bringing extensive reforms  in education system of the country, because the people expect in all sided revolution in education system of  the country.
